    I bought my chicken when it was about 4-5 weeks old it's now about 5 months it doesn't have spurs or a big comb but it crows around 10 every morning can someone help me identify it's gender?

    Sounds like you have a rooster. Spurs aren't a good way to tell gender, some birds don't get them until after a year old, and some hens get them. But a 5 month old bird crowing is male.
